The Katy Culture & Arts Alliance and Multiplicity present
the Art of CAROL ADAMS & MIKE HORN for the first time!
Carol is a native Houstonian residing in Katy since 1992. She describes her works as:
“I love the freedom of working with wood. I don’t always know what I am working with, so I never know what I’ll find as the wood turns on the lathe. Each piece creates itself and as the rings and grain are revealed you learn about what may have happened both to the tree and in the world it grew in. You don’t get a second chance when working with wood, if you mess up it is ruined. So this medium, like life, comes with the potential for great disappointment or great satisfaction.”
Mike is a newcomer to Katy, recently moving to our area a few months ago. He is originally from Rifle, Colorado and has been working with his ink and metal medium for 12 years.

This business is truly created from the heart. The mission of this organization is stated as follows:
“To value all life as we work daily to represent Christ’s love in the flesh.
To provide a stable, secure environment where families can learn the importance, as well as the joy, value and benefits of physically playing together.
To educate the community of the beauty of true diversity of mind, body and spirit in all aspects of life.”
The Creator’s Kids will offer classes and teams for ages 5-13, as well as supervised socials and teams for ages 14-21. Its goal is to be inclusive of all individuals despite diversity, and is initially directed towards children that are home-schooled. However, this program may be utilized by area schools. A sampling of the classes are art, music, and home economics. The clubs will include drama, vocal and creative dance.
Founders, Lisa and Brian Goff, are the parents of three adopted special needs children.
I have been trying to keep my office organized and finally decided that I needed an extra bookcase. I found some that I liked at IKEA, but they were too expensive.
In order to save some money, I kept my eyes peeled on craigslist and got lucky: a white three-shelf Mainstay bookcase for only $10. The best part? It was already assembled!
I loved the look of these shelves because of the bright painted interior and decided to do something more cost effective and less time consuming for a similar look.
Add a design to your shelving with gift wrapping paper or scrapbook paper:
Buy cute paper (I got mine from the dollar store)
Take out the shelves if you can
Cut one large piece of the paper to fit the interior back of your bookcase (this is what I did) or measure the back of each shelf and cut accordingly
Use a few small pieces of tape on each side to keep the paper in place
I also really like this idea because it is so easy to change up the look!
A few more ideas: Don’t my flowers look pretty? Fake flowers are a very easy way to brighten a room without requiring a lot of upkeep. I got these three stems and the glass vase for $17 at Garden Ridge in Katy. The ribbon was part of my huge scrapbooking/gift wrapping collection and probably came as part of a gift from someone else. The box is from some stationery that I used up.
